is it possible that sections are not indexed for the search?
If so, is it possible to tell wordpress to index them?
Thanks a lot

Great! thx!November 26, 2015 at 9:37 am #155890TomLead DeveloperLead Developer
This plugin actually looks great: https://wordpress.org/plugins/relevanssi/
It enhances the search functionality, and also includes all custom fields so Sections will be indexed as well.November 30, 2015 at 6:18 am #156758Marc
thx, I’ll check it out.
Are you still planning to add this search enhancement to your theme in a future version or is this a permanent solution? If so it would be nice to have a list of useful and compatible addons (including this one).
I would be interested of such a list anyway 😉November 30, 2015 at 6:59 am #156765Marc
Just checked it out, doesn’t seem to work, have you got the premium version?
One of the premium features is:
Search and index arbitrary columns in wp_posts MySQL table.
and I guess this is what’s necessary to index sections.November 30, 2015 at 11:01 am #156839TomLead DeveloperLead Developer
Hmm, let me look into it some more – there has to be a way to do it without premium versions or spending more money.
I’ll update you 🙂December 7, 2015 at 9:43 am #158559TomLead DeveloperLead Developer
I believe I found the best solution for this that doesn’t require a plugin.
Once your sections are created, set the “Use Sections” option to “No”.
Now empty your regular content area, and click the “Send Sections to Default Editor” button.
This will send all of your section content to the regular editor.
Now set “Use Sections” back to “Yes”, and save the page.
That should allow the page to be searched.
Let me know 🙂
